I woke up in real pain after having a few good days.I planned on doing a few chores around house,but my neck and arm hurt so much!I put on icy/hot patch,my regular pain meds,I have been on oxycontin 20,3 aday,Iam suppose to take 4aday by choice I take less due to not liking the side affects.I also have digestive problems and taking other meds so the less pills the better .Its seemed Iwas doing better,then a day like today knocks me back.I never know when the pain is going act up? I am so tired of laying around not doing much ,it got to the point I stopped doing things or even getting out of bed at times.I decided I would not do that anymore and started a walking program ,even if it only around the block and force myself up daily in spite of the pain.The fact even posting this is an accoplishment to me,its all done with my left hand .Ithink pushing thur the pain and making the best of it ,till the dr.says surgery ,its taking so long ?well Iam getting a bit sore now ,so till next time takecare everyone

Everyone seems to have good days and bad days. We all also seem to over do it on the good days which probably make the bad days a little worse.

At least I know that is how it goes for me. I try to moderate what I do on my good days, but by the time they roll around I am so far behind in what I really need to get done it is hard, especially never knowing what tomorrow is going to bring.

cry  So sorry to hear you are feeling so bad, sore42long, I am Kathy and nini53.  I dont see anything at the end of your post saying what different things cause your cp.  Have you been and cp patient very long.  It sounds like you are somewhat depressed also, this on top of the cp is very difficult to deal with.
 
I dont want to ramble on and on like I did on another post, but I am fairly sure many cp patients suffer from time to time from depression.  I think this is worse or at least as difficult to handle and the chronic pain.  I myself spent the first 2 years of my complete disability in bed.  I only got out of bed to go to doctors appt.  Finally I realized that my chronic pain was not going to change, I would have to if I wanted any kind of life.
 
Please take care of yourself, and I will be praying you will be feeling better very soon.  I do think its important to keep coming back to this cp forum.  I know I have found coming here invaluable.

thanks for responce  and I do not know how to underline and write my cp and other med problems,besides  thoraic outlet syndrom ,in right arm ,neck hand ,shoulder,which makes it hard to type or do much for that matter,Iam fighting depression,IBS ect. I will take the advice and realize ,this is just a bad day .Iam happy Itryed to do something today even if its not much.The problem is the surgery has 70%of working and surgeon is checking every other option ,and Iam so frusterated and can't apply for work or do too of anything.which is really depressing me !I thank chultz for reminding me,somedays are better .All I can say is atleast Iam trying.

Sore42long all any of us can do is try.  Please know I am not at all trying to minimilize all that you are going thru.  I can hear the pain in your posts.  It is so very hard to keep up with everything when all you want to do is lay in bed.  I know this from experience.  Maybe try to do just a little a day.  I find that if I do one thing, like doing the dishes, then thats that.  I know, its not alot, but unless I am feeling really good, somedays, thats all I can and will do.
 
I will be praying for you and hoping you will be feeling better soon.
